Signature Loans and Lines of Credit
Based on your creditworthiness, a signature loan can provide a specific dollar amount for a set period of time to be used for any reason, and requires no collateral, just your signature! Another option is to establish a revolving line of credit that you can draw on as you need it, up to your approved limit. This line of credit can also be set up as overdraft protection for your Dover Federal Checking Account.
